About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 7034 yards
Slope 132
Rating 74.9

There are 27 holes of golf available at Broken Arrow Golf Club, which are broken down into the East, North, and South nines. They are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The East/North Course begins with the most challenging nine of the three. Sloped fairways, hidden water, and strategically placed bunkers make good course management essential. The back nine is considered the most scenic but it boasts another distinction. It is the only course with a dual-green concept in the Midwest, meaning that golfers have the choice of playing to either of the two flags on each hole. It was designed to give players control over the difficulty of the golf course. There are also 30 bunkers and mature trees that come into play on the back nine.

Stay away from these Greens

The greens on the course have a major problem this year. They were mostly compacted dirt. I do not know what the problem is but they have never been this bad. The course layout is a good challenge. The club house was closed they are doing major remodeling, so bring your own beverage.

Average in Parts, great in others!

We played the North 9 and South 9 and the North 9 was considerably better. I’d say 6/9 greens were in fantastic condition whereas the South 9, the greens were really bad. Black in many areas and were very burnt. The rest of the course was nice minus the greens, fairways and tee boxes were nice. Probably will play somewhere else which has a course in better condition.

Greens are a mess!

14 out of 18 greens were severely damaged by either disease or over fertilization because they were brown with parts of the greens had some grass on them.

There was no notification ahead of time, nor at check in.

We won’t be back this season!!!

Disappointed

Of the 18 played maybe had 3-4 well taken care of greens. Driving range closed. Clubhouse closed. Overpriced given the cons.

Greens were brown

Was an extremely hot day, driving range and halfway house were both closed. Arrived an hour early to practice and couldn’t. Wasn’t any food besides a snickers and bag of chips the entire 18. Didn’t see the cart lady on the back 9 so couldn’t even eat a second snickers. Was starving by then end of the round. The greens were brown and as slick as glass. I won’t be going back anytime soon unfortunately.

Dead greens

8 or 9 of the greens were a dark brown completely. We waiting about 10 minutes to tee off on every hole and when we're were finishing on 18 there were 4 foursomes waiting to tee off on the south course. Really disappointed in this course for the money I paid. I won't be back any time soon.

Greens in Poor Condition

The general condition of the tee boxes, fairways, and rough was fine. The problem with the course begins with the greens. They appear to be burnt out, so much so that there is no grass on them. The Greenskeeper has done what he can to make them playable, but it's like putting on a pool table. They are lightening fast and unpredictable. Of the 18 holes played, only 2 or 3 were actually majority grass.

To be fair, the club is fully aware of the issues and are doing everything they can to address it. Give it a couple of months and thing should be back to normal.

Greens burnt to a crisp

Between my son and I, we have played Broken Arrow 20+ times and we’ve never seen the greens so trashed. They were brown and hard - little to no grass on 12 of 18 green. 6 we’re in really good shape. We got to the point where we refused to putt, gave 2 putts and moved on. Not sure if the hot stretch of weather did that, however, watering them properly would have gone a long way to make them somewhat playable. Rest of course was in good shape. For now, stay away until they address the greens.
